Monica proposed to Mark after watching a film together. The couple, who have been together for 19 years, married in a 1950s gangster and moll themed wedding, with lots of movie references, including some striking centrepieces. They plan to honeymoon in Nashville next year.
The Bride and Groom
Mark and Monica had been watching ‘End of Watch’ on the sofa together when, inspired by one of the character’s proposal stories, Monica said to Mark: “Ok, we’re getting married!” She was stunned when he agreed, after 19 years of being together!
Mark decided after so long together, he didn’t want to wait any longer so they planned the wedding to take place within a year. The couple both love films and decided to reflect that with their wedding theme; they planned a day with a quirky gangster theme and lots of movie inspired touches.
Their long awaited wedding was anything but traditional, with the bride eschewing the classic white dress in favour of a bright red and blue patterned gown, and the groomsmen all rocking trilby hats and sunglasses!
